When disaster strikes, such as the recent flooding in the Houston area from Tropical Storm Imelda, Catholic Charities leaps into action immediately to provide help through its human-service programs. These are essential to immediate relief from disasters and for the more persistent challenges that arise during recovery.
Catholic Charities is one of 60 ministries supported by the Diocesan Services Fund.
I recently went to a wedding party where the groom, at the time of the toast, chose to share how God had changed his life. While he was sharing “his story” and half of the guests were teary, I thought to myself: “this is unconventional; this is not what usually happens in a wedding toast.”
Recientemente fui a una boda donde el novio, durante el brindis, decidió compartir cómo Dios había cambiado su vida. Mientras que el compartía “su historia” y la mitad de los invitados estaban con lágrimas en los ojos, pensé: “esto está fuera de lo ordinario, estas historias casi nunca son compartidas en un brindis de boda.”
